welcome home esante

the 8 hour round trip was a success. we came home with a new to me sewing/embroidery machine with all the bells and whistles i'll ever need or want. we enjoyed the long country ride and even stopped at uf for a tour of the student gardens. it was interesting to see how differently the vegetables were staked and they even had bannana trees, with bannanas, 15 feet tall. back to the machine, it is a 9 year old machine by babylock, it has lots and lots of stitches, it embroiders, it has a button that you push and it cuts the thread for you, it has a touch screen and it's just really cool. i'm very excited and all my waiting and research paid off because i feel like i got something that is very versitile that can take me to the next level of sewing, but i didn't get ripped off in the process. i'm off to practice with my new machine!

I'm so excited for you! You are going to have so much fun with your babylock! I have the babylock ellure & Love it!! You can download free designs from a lot of different machine embroidery websites & if your esante has USB connectivity like the new one does...look out, endless possibilities! My ellure does not have that but I have the Amazing Box II that will take any design format & write it to a memory card in the format that babylock machines use -- it is awesome!
Happy Anniversary & have FUN playing with your 'new' machine!
